Women in HE Conference 2021

This one-day event will focus on issues surrounding women working in HE, such as gender equality, pathways to leadership and pregnancy and maternity.
Women in HE Conference - Early Bird offer

Despite comprising the majority of staff working in UK higher education, women remain underrepresented at the most senior levels and the challenge to increase the pace of change remains. This conference will consider the key challenges in achieving step change across HE in relation to all gender equality issues through practical exploration of the known and hidden challenges across a range of intersectional themes relating to women in HE. The day will build on our expertise in this area drawn from our leadership of the Athena Swan Charter, championing women’s leadership development, including Aurora, equal pay and supporting the extension of women represented on university boards – all to encourage and support change across the sector.

Who: Individuals who are championing gender equality and women who are seeking to develop their careers in more senior roles within HE institutions
